Critical Race Theory, CRT, a doctrine that began in the 1970s, has been gradually gaining ground ever since, working its way into our educational system, where it is now a powerful force.
Thankfully, many Americans are now waking up to it. Some are actively speaking up against it.
CRT teaches that white people are uniquely evil and that American society is by its very nature “white supremacist” and anti-black.
This despite the fact that American blacks are the most prosperous group of black people in the world.
According to CRT, black basketball player Lebron James (net worth $500 million) is oppressed, while a bankrupt and homeless white man has “white privilege.”
The ultimate end of CRT would be the abolition of the U.S. Constitution.
Near the end of his term, President Donald Trump banned the teaching of CRT in the federal government, but the Biden administration reversed the ban on Inauguration Day.
Several states have banned the teaching of CRT in their schools.
At the grassroots level, brave parents have been speaking against it at public school board meetings.
It’s become an issue in some school board elections.
Ryan Girdusky has formed the ambitious 1776 Commission PAC to finance anti-CRT school board candidates across the United States. Click here to enter the website of the 1776 Commission PAC, and click here to view Tucker Carlson’s interview with Girdusky.
CRT is not the only problem. Our whole public educational system has a lot to answer for.
How are we turning out so many students who hate their country and their country’s heritage?
Parents are the first line of defense in working against these negative influences in their own families.
Beyond that, they should be aware of what’s going on at the tax-supported institutions that brainwash American youth.
Xi Van Fleet (pictured, left) spoke up at a June 8th meeting of the Loudoun County School Board in Virginia. Though her own son graduated from the school system in 2015, she’s still rightfully concerned about it.

Here is the text of Xi Van Fleet’s short speech, interspersed with my comments:
“I’ve been very alarmed by what’s going on in our school. You are now teaching, training our children to be social justice warriors and to loathe our country and our history.”
Note that, although a Chinese immigrant, she now identifies with the U.S. – “our country and our history.”
“Growing up in Mao’s China, all this seems very familiar.”
Mao Zedong was a totalitarian dictator of communist China, his policies responsible for the deaths of millions of Chinese people. For a Chinese immigrant to say this is rather troubling. But Xi Van Fleet explains why.
“The communist regime used the same critical theory to divide people. The only difference is they used class instead of race.”
Today’s CRT uses race. Mao’s regime used social class. But the essence is the same – ginning up hate and resentment towards a group of fellow citizens, for political power.
She shares her memories of China’s Cultural Revolution (1966-1976).
“During the Cultural Revolution, we witnessed students and teachers turned against each other, we changed the school names to be politically correct. We were taught to denounce our heritage, and Red Guards destroyed anything that is not communist – statues, books and anything else. We were also encouraged to report on each other, just like the Student Equity Ambassador program and the bias reporting system.”
A similar mentality seems to be at play today in the U.S.A.
“This is indeed the American version of the Chinese Cultural Revolution. The critical race theory has its roots in cultural Marxism. It should have no place in our school.”
Xi Van Fleet’s speech went viral, and she was later interviewed by Sean Hannity. You can view that interview here.
Bravo to this brave lady! We need more people like her and we ignore her warning at our peril.
